    It has been a

    1)It has been a wonderful experience working here.

    2) I had a wonderful experience working here.

    Can we use either of the above sentences when leaving organisation?

    Re: It has been a

    Yes.

    You need to add "an" before "organisation".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: It has been a

    1)It has been a wonderful experience working here.

    2) I had a wonderful experience working here.

    3) I have a wonderful experience working here. ( I doubt about this sentence)

    Can we use either of the above sentences when leaving an organization?

    Re: It has been a

    I would use 1. 2 is OK, but 3 doesn't work for me.

    Re: It has been a

    You could say: I have had a wonderful experience working here.
    I am not a teacher or a native speaker.

    I would use 'any' instead of 'either' because there are more than two.
    I am not a teacher.

    Re: It has been a

    Suppose I am working somewhere then can I say the sentence below:

    I have a wonderful experience working here. If not, then whether it means that this sentence is not correct in any context.

    Re: It has been a

    If you're still working there, you can say "I am having a wonderful experience working here". If you've left the organisation, you can say "I had/I have had a wonderful experience ...".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    There's a difference. 1 means that working there was a wonderful experience. It explicitly means "working here" = "the wonderful experience".
    2 could mean that while you were working there, you had a wonderful experience. It doesn't say what that experience was.

    Therefore, I'd use 1.
